  • Resource-based modality selection in robot-assisted cognitive training 

    Taranovic, Aleksandar; Jevtic, Aleksandar; Hernández Farigola, Joan; Tantinyà, Natalia; Abdelnour, Carla; Torras, Carme (2018)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    The majority of socially assistive robots interact with their users using multiple modalities. Multimodality is an important feature that can enable them to adapt to the user behavior and the environment. In this work, we ...
  • Visual semantic re-ranker for text spotting 

    Sabir, Ahmed; Moreno-Noguer, Francesc; Padró, Lluís (2018)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Many current state-of-the-art methods for text recognition are based on purely local information and ignore the semantic corre- lation between text and its surrounding visual context. In this paper, we propose a post-processing ...
  • A distributed set-membership approach based on zonotopes for interconnected systems 

    Wang, Ye; Álamo, Teodoro; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç; Cembrano Gennari, Gabriela (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2018)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    This paper proposes a distributed set-membership approach based on zonotopes for interconnected systems with coupled states and unknown-but-bounded uncertainties (both state disturbances and measurement noise). The objective ...
  • Fault-tolerant model predictive control applied to integrated urban drainage and sanitation systems for environmental protection 

    Meseguer Amela, Jordi; Joseph Duran, Bernat; Cembrano Gennari, Gabriela; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç (2018)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    This paper presents a FTC framework for a Real-Time MPC-based Controller applied to Integrated Urban Drainage and Sanitation Systems (UDSSs) which was proposed in the LIFE EFFIDRAIN project. This project deals with the ...
  • Health-aware LPV-MPC based on system reliability assessment for drinking water networks 

    Karimi Pour, Fatemeh; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç; Cembrano Gennari, Gabriela (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2018)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    This paper proposes a health-aware model predictive control (MPC) for drinking water networks that includes an additional goal to extend the components and system reliability. The components and system reliability are ...
  • Dynamic threshold computation in fault detection for discrete-time linear systems 

    Liu, X.; Wang, Zhen; Wang, Ye; Shen, Y. (2018)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    This paper studies threshold computation in observer-based fault detection for discrete-time linear systems subject to unknown but bounded uncertainties. Based on two different assumptions on uncertainties, we propose two ...
  • Forward kinematics of the general triple-arm robot using a distance-based formulation 

    Rojas, Nicolas; Thomas, Federico (Springer, 2017)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Distance-based formulations have successfully been used to obtain closure polynomialsfor planar mechanisms without relying, in most cases, on variable eliminations. The methods re-sulting from previous attempts to generalize ...
  • A new insight into the coupler curves of the RCCC four-bar linkage 

    Thomas, Federico; Pérez Gracia, Alba (Springer, 2017)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Based on the condition for four points to lie on the unit sphere, derived using Distance Geometry, a new mathematical formulation for the coupler curves of the RCCC linkage is presented. The relevance of this formulation ...
  • Cyber-physical systems for real-time management in the urban water cycle 

    Sun, Congcong; Cembrano Gennari, Gabriela; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç; Meseguer Amela, Jordi (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2018)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    In the last few decades, water systems management has been increasingly developed into cyber-physical systems. They are based on advanced intelligent systems embedded with controllers, sensors and actuators to enable ...
  • Robust control of systems with output hysteresis and input saturation using a finite time stability approach 

    Rotondo, Damiano; Rizzello, Gianluca; Naso, David (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2018)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    This paper presents a robust control approach for a class of nonlinear dynamic systems consisting of a linear plant connected in series with a hysteresis operator, and affected by control input saturation. Such a class of ...
  • Advanced integrated real-time control of combined urban drainage systems using MPC: Badalona case study 

    Sun, Congcong; Joseph Duran, Bernat; Cembrano Gennari, Gabriela; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç; Meseguer Amela, Jordi (2018)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Combined urban drainage system (CUDS) collect both wastewater and raining water through sewer networks to wastewater treatment plants (WWTP) before releasing to the environment. During storm weather, rain and wastewater ...
  • Factors influencing the simplified quality model performance 

    Feng, Jing; Sun, Congcong; Cembrano Gennari, Gabriela; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç (2018)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    During the last few years, the integrated real-time control (RTC) of both the urban sewer network and the wastewater treatment plants (WWTP), has attracted increasingly attention. In order to apply integrated RTC control ...
